Trivia

Michael Landon was the first choice to play Steven Bennett. He declined, feeling that he was so strongly identified with the role of the morally upright father Charles Ingalls on "Little House on the Prarie" that no one accept him portraying a sexually abusive father. See more »

excellent film
6 September 2001 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

An excellent film that handles a difficult topic well. The casting and sets create an atmosphere to let the story unfold in a seemingly average American home, which adds both to the realism and power of this movie. Ted Danson plays the deceptively normal father to the hilt, and the rest of the cast handle their roles with a high degree of believability. This is a powerful film that handles a difficult subject with intelligence and emotion without sensationalizing. Highly recommended.
